The National Weather Service defines a severe thunderstorm as one that produces quarter size hail or larger, 58 mph winds or greater, and/or a  tornado.

Today and tonight:  Severe weather is not anticipated.

Tomorrow through Thursday night:  Severe weather is not anticipated.  A few lightning strikes are possible Thursday night.

Friday through Monday:  Lightning is possible Friday.  I will monitor the risk of stronger storms.  There remain questions about the placement of the warm front and the unstable air.  It may near our southern counties.  South of the front there is the potential of strong thunderstorms.

I am also monitoring the risk of a few elevated thunderstorms north of the warm front.  Hail would be possible with these thunderstorms.

As always, monitor updates.

I am monitoring March 22nd through 24th and March 25th through 29th for thunderstorms.

Highlights

What has changed over the last 24 hours?

N/A today

Weather Hazards.

 

What trends will I be monitoring over the coming days?

  1.  I will be monitoring the placement of a warm front Friday and Friday night/Saturday.  This front will be key to actual air temperatures.  Cooler north of the front and warmer south of the front.  Adjustments may be necessary for temperatures.
  2.  The potential of a few strong thunderstorms Friday and Friday night and again Monday/Monday night.

 

I hope everyone is having a nice week!

It has been a tad chilly for my taste.  I am ready to put winter behind us and move into spring.

Today through Thursday evening will be dry.  Temperatures today will be a bit warmer than yesterday.  Highs will mostly be in the upper 40’s to middle 50’s.

Lows tonight will dip into the 30’s.  We may avoid another freeze tonight.  Frost is possible.

High temperatures will rise into the 60’s on Thursday!  Collective cheer?  It will feel nice, especially after our recent snow (for some) and cold.

The weather takes a turn Thursday night into Friday.

A strong warm front will develop Thursday night and Friday.  This front will then become the focus of showers and thunderstorms.  A few locally heavy storms will be possible.  I can’t rule out lightning and maybe a few reports of hail.

Check out the GFS model guidance temperatures Friday.  A wide range of temperatures across that front.  Where the front ends up will be key to your backyard temperature.

Friday 7 PM.

Strong storms are possible in the warm sector of this rain event.

 

 

Widespread severe weather is not anticipated.

A roller-coaster ride in the temperature department.  This animation runs from Friday through Tuesday.  Up and down we go.

You can find the warm and cold fronts as they meander through our region.

The sharpest temperature contrast will be Friday and Monday.

Keep in mind, the placement of these fronts will be key to your temperatures.  This is one model’s opinion.

 

 

The Storm Prediction Center has outlined a risk of severe thunderstorms Friday and Friday night.  You can see that depicted in the graphic below.

We have been watching this system for about two or three weeks.

The light green outline represents where lightning is possible.  Storms are not anticipated to be severe in that zone.  A few reports of gusty winds and small hail possible.

The dark green area is where some thunderstorms could produce large hail and damaging winds.

The yellow zone is where the Storm Prediction Center believes the greatest risk of severe thunderstorms will be located.

Monitor updates.  These outlooks often times shift around as more data becomes available.

 

 

Rainfall totals Thursday night (late) into Saturday will likely range from 0.40″ to 0.80″.  Locally higher totals are possible.

Here is the latest NOAA rainfall outlook.  This takes us through Saturday 7 PM.

Notice the northwest to southeast band of rain.  That is because the warm front will be situated over our southern counties.  The heaviest rain will train along the warm front.

 

 

This next graphic shows you the rain totals from Thursday night through Tuesday morning.  This is not in addition to the above.  This is showing you the precipitation totals from Thursday night through Tuesday.

Rain totals from Thursday night through Tuesday should range from 0.60″ to 1″00.  Locally higher totals possible.

 

 

Here is the future-cast radar from the GFS model guidance.  Keep in mind, this is a model and not gospel.  It won’t be exact.  Just take the general idea from this graphic that some rain will be possible late Thursday night and then on/off into early next week.

This first animation is for Thursday night into Tuesday morning.

You can see the rain showers and thunderstorms move into the region Thursday night and Friday.  There is a lull in the precipitation Saturday morning and afternoon.  I can’t rule out isolated showers.

Rain chances then ramp up again Sunday afternoon into Monday night.  Perhaps the greatest chance being Sunday night into Monday.  This will need to be fine-tuned as confidence in the eventual outcome increases.

If you have outdoor plans Saturday and Sunday then I would not cancel them.  I would monitor updates and radars.

High temperatures both Saturday and Sunday should be in the 50’s.  It is possible that a few 60’s are reported, but confidence is not all that great, yet.

The GFS shows an area of low pressure passing to our north and northwest Monday and Monday night.  This would if true, place us in the warm sector of that system.  That would mean showers and perhaps some thunderstorms.

The EC guidance shows some CAPE.  CAPE is basically energy for thunderstorms.  It can be a signal for severe thunderstorms.  Let’s keep an eye on Monday.

Here is the EC CAPE numbers for Monday and Monday night.  The EC brings the front through late Monday night and Tuesday morning.

This is the 7 AM CAPE map.  Typically, we don’t experience a lot of severe weather during that time of the day.  With that said, it is not a rule.  I have witnessed severe weather at all hours of the day.

 

 

Right now, the SPC has not outlined our region for severe weather Sunday night into Monday.  I would recommend, however, monitoring updates.

Green is rain.  Blue is snow.

 

 

The long-range outlook appears to be shaping up as a stormy one.  Spring is knocking on our door.

For example, the GFS is painting this.  A series of low-pressure centers with cold fronts sweeping through our region.

The long-range outlook is for stormy weather.

This is in the long-range, so the confidence, of course, is low.  I just want to show you the idea that we may have stormy weather as we move later into March.

Green is rain.  Blue is snow.  Darker colors represent heavier precipitation.

Date and time stamp upper left.

 

 

These are bonus videos and maps for subscribers.

I bring these to you from the BAMwx team.  I pay them to help with videos.  They have a great team of meteorologists.  The Ohio and Missouri Valley videos cover most of our area.  They do not have a specific Tennessee Valley forecast but may add on in the future.

The long-range video is technical.  Over time, you can learn a lot about meteorology from the long range video.  Just keep in mind, it is a bit more technical.

 

 



 

 

 

 

 

Will be posted later this morning.

 

I bring these to you from the BAMwx team.  They are excellent long-range forecasters.  I am not a big fan of long-range outlooks, but they have a decent track record.

Remember, long-range outlooks are a bit of skill, understanding weather patterns, and luck combined.  It is not an exact science.

ANNOUNCEMENT!

 

I am working on a few new items for us.

As always, I am grateful for all of you and the support you bring to my passion.

There was never a plan.

All of this started with a severe weather email list of ten or twenty people after the killer 2003 tornadoes. That grew to what you see today.

From that tornado, the Shadow Angel Foundation was born. We delivered hundreds of teddy bears to Pulaski, Massac, and Pope Counties. The “storm” bears went to Head Start, Kindergarten, and first graders. Included with the bears was a package of information for parents on how to talk to their child about tornadoes and severe weather.

We then worked with the Metropolis Planet on producing the Terror in the Night tornado book. The book was filled with personal accounts of that horrible night. Many people said the book helped bring closure.

Since then we have delivered thousands of teddy bears to Child Watch and Pasac. The counselors use the teddy bears to help the children feel safe.

Soon after that, the late Kent King (radio DJ and emergency manager) asked me to cover weather for McCracken County OEM/DES. I was COM 10 on the scanner feeds.

Ed Duff, with McCracken County Rescue, now utilizes my services during severe weather events along with two other local counties. They receive one on one attention during events.

That led me to Sue Henry with the American Red Cross where I was able to help during Hurricane Katrina and Rita. An experience that changed my life.

Around that time social media exploded onto the scene. My personal Facebook page quickly filled up with 5000 people. The limit Facebook allows for personal pages.

Facebook then started pages. I was able to make a page just for weather.

It was soon after that that I bought a portion of my family farm back. We built my house and the Weather Observatory.

Jason Darnall helped put together an amazing weather center. Many hours of work.

Then the Paducah Sun then asked me to do weather for them.

That led to the amazing team at Innovations Branding House. They produced my Weather Observatory website.

About four years ago there was a falling out with some local meteorologists. It bothered me so much that I almost quit weather.

The Paducah Sun even ran a story that I was taking a break from weather. I was taking a year off.

Several other local meteorologists then came to me and told me to brush it off. They encouraged me to start a weather business. They explained what I could bring to the local weather table.

Soon after that, as fate would have it, Preston Ursini and the Fire Horn team asked me to think about producing text messages during severe weather. That led to Weather Talk. That then led to the Weather Talk app.

Had it not been for that low point, I don’t think Weather Talk would have ever come to be. Life is funny like that. Something bad turned into something good.

I often times tell people that I have the best Facebook friends, enthusiasts, and followers. It is rare that someone complains on the weather page.

Some of you have basically become like family to me. When severe weather strikes it becomes personal to both you and me.

Here is what we are going to bring you.

1. We are coming out with a major app update for subscribers. We plan on having radar in the app, as well as your usual app/text messages to the daily blog, video, and Facebook updates.

2. We are completely revamping the WeatherTalk website. Preston Ursini, from The Fire Horn, is working alongside Innovations Branding House to complete this task. The Fire Horn is who I partner with to make all of this work.

3. I am going to try and stick to a daily schedule. That way everyone knows when to expect an update. See the comment section.

4. Many of you have asked me to do Facebook Live video updates during winter storms and severe weather outbreaks. I have spent the last week learning how to use OBS studio software. This software will allow me to deliver you Facebook Live events. You will get your wish.

5. We are moving towards a flat subscription fee of $5 a month. Everyone that is paying $3 a month will be grandfathered in. If you want to voluntarily upgrade to the $5 plan then that would be great. We will roll this out when the new website is finished.

Right now we have a $3, $5, and $10 plan. The only difference is how many cell phone numbers you can add.

With the $5 a month plan we will let everyone have up to seven phone numbers. That should cover your family members. Sound good?

6. I have streamlined the digital media blog. That would be the talk.weathertalk.com site. You will find that is has been organized.

Remember, I work for you. I don’t work for television or radio. I am your employee.

You have a personal meteorologist. And, as everyone knows, I put my heart and soul into this.

Subscribers will receive the following:

You may subscribe at www.beaudodsonweather.com

1. The app/text updates during tornado outbreaks and all other weather events.
2. Rapid-fire tornado app/text messages. I send out numerous updates as I track the tornado. Some of you can testify to these rapid-fire tornado messages.
3. Daily weather forecast sent to your app/text.
4. Link sent to the app/text to the daily blog and Facebook updates on non-severe weather days. Instead of waiting around for me to post a new Facebook thread you can receive it in your app/text.
5. Link sent to the app/text to the daily blog and Facebook updates on severe weather or winter storm days.
6. We are updating the weather map page on the website. That page will have thousands of daily weather maps for you to access.
7. I answer every email you send. I try to answer every private message you send to me.
8. We run three hour live feeds during severe weather where we attempt to answer as many questions as possible. Same for winter storms.
9. You receive access to special short and long-range video updates from the Bamwx team (who help me with daily videos).
10. You receive access to special short, long-range, and seasonal temperature and precipitation outlooks.
11. Your subscription fee helps six local charities (see comment section for more information).

Normal monthly out of pocket operating costs (see comment section) are around $2000.00.

The service I provide is unique. I don’t believe there is anything else like it in the country. Not for this price and not for the volume of information you receive.

We hope to have the new app and website finished soon. Watch for announcements.

 

 

New schedule

 

Example of some of my rapid-fire tornado app/text messages.

Make sure you have app/text notification ONE turned on.  This one is called WeatherOne.  You can make sure that is on by signing into your www.weathertalk.com account and clicking the personal notification settings tab.  Make sure WeatherOne is on (green).  Green is on.  Red is off.

 

 

 


We offer interactive local city live radars and regional radars.   If a radar does not update then try another one.  If a radar does not appear to be refreshing then hit Ctrl F5.  You may also try restarting your browser.

The local city view radars also have clickable warnings.

During the winter months, you can track snow and ice by clicking the winterize button on the local city view interactive radars.

You may email me at beaudodson@usawx.com

Did you know that a portion of your monthly subscription helps support local charity projects?

You can learn more about those projects by visiting the Shadow Angel Foundation website and the Beau Dodson News website.

I encourage subscribers to use the app vs regular text messaging.  We have found text messaging to be delayed during severe weather.  The app typically will receive the messages instantly.  I recommend people have three to four methods of receiving their severe weather information.

Remember, my app and text alerts are hand typed and not computer generated.  You are being given personal attention during significant weather events.
